ACA Association Croquet President’s Eights
Beautiful spring weather was enjoyed by all over the four days of competition. The freshly scarified lawns were of good speed, and the occasional gusty wind, coupled with the usual ‘hills’ provided players with challenges and frustrations.
A significant number of players were unavailable to participate this year resulting in only having three blocks of 8. This provided the opportunity for new players to experience the Eights for the first time – some were first time visitors to Cairnlea.
